Chanel Embodies Nature For Spring 2016 Couture

Much like its ready-to-wear shows, Chanel’s couture presentations are famous for elaborate settings based on a conceptual theme of Karl Lagerfeld’s choosing: a bustling casino, blooming flowers, the work of architect Le Corbusier.

For his spring 2016 couture collection, he dedicated it to nature. The Grand Palais featured a two-story wooden dollhouse-like structure surrounded by a green geometric garden, made from real grass (of course).

The theme easily came through in the clothes: Fabrics were embroidered with wood shavings, small tiles or patterns of bees, birds and flowers. Each model wore cork platform shoes, and almost every look was a different shade of beige.

The most stunning looks? Dresses with geometric lace and textured embroidery in rhinestones or beading.
